Design wall Monday 4/28/14 batik borders

I decided on a layout for the batik squares. I ended up with something different than any of the choices I posted last time. Now I’m working on the borders. I have the first 2 sewn on. A green and then a light colored batik. I have it hanging on the wall and I’m thinking another thin green border and then a dark batik. (This will use up the 2 scraps I have of the dark batik.) Then I can bind it with the green and use some more of it.


That’s what’s on the wall. I haven’t sewn on it yet today as I’m busy with a custom quilt job on Millie and a veggie quilt on Viqtoria.

Vicky used all vegetable fabrics in her quilt and I found a panto with vegetables, so that’s what it’s getting. 🙂


I remember when I first started machine quilting and the choice of pantograph patterns was slim. Now they have so many great ones out there that it’s sometimes hard to choose one! 🙂

Anyway, that’s what’s going on here, to see what others are doing check out

Thanks for stopping by!

Batik rail fence

Sashings and borders are on. Yea! It’s now ready to quilt. I have to work on a few customer quilts before I can quilt it though.

I now have 2 of my own tops ready for an all over quilt job. I have the first of 2 black and white strip quilts assembled.
I am making progress on eliminating my stash. 🙂

Have a good day!!

Design wall 4/21/14 batiks

I’ve been doing my 10 minutes a day with the blue blocks that have been on my design wall and I now have 16 blocks done. Yea! I took them down so I could put these blocks up and decide what to use for the sashing fabric and also decide what width to make them. I’m using my stash and these are NOT my colors, so I don’t have much to choose from. I also don’t know what I’ll do for the border. Hmmm. Decisions, decisions…..

That’s my wall for today. To see more walls check out
